The military will deploy its own system before Seoul sets up the American one, Wang Hongguang says

China knew it might not be able to stop Seoul deploying a US anti-missile system and was prepared to counter with its own anti-radar equipment, a retired PLA general said on Monday.

The comments by Wang Hongguang came as a South Korean court’s decision to uphold the impeachment of Park Geun-hye, the country’s former president, fanned hopes Seoul might put plans for the Terminal High Altitude Area ­Defence system on hold. Continue reading

The New World Order

Not to be confused with the “Illuminati” NWO nonsense, which is a Russian red herring, we’re talking about a restructured global leadership and direction based on communism.

 

Recently the Russian military force deployed an advanced anti-missile system and sophisticated radars over Syria. In doing so, Russia and its allies in Iran and Hezbollah realize the ability of the U.S. to assist the rebel groups in Aleppo is severely limited. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president, may not know what Aleppo is, but for anyone following current events this city of 250,000 is now a “killing field.” Continue reading

Turkey could choose China’s missile defense system by end of year: report

This is a follow-up story to what was posted in July of 2013. They’re fed up with delays on being admitted as a member of the EU and want to threaten the security of the NATO alliance should they not get their way. The painful truth being, the EU doesn’t want a nation of 77 million that’s 99% islamic flooding the European continent. Therefore, a split is foreseable.

 

Turkey will likely end up choosing China’s long-range missile system and complete a deal by the end of the year if US and European arms manufacturers continue to refuse amending their offers to meet Ankara’s demands, reports Turkey’s Daily Sabah.

In 2013, Turkey accepted a bid from the China Precision Machinery Export-Import Corporation (CPMIEC) for its first anti-missile system at a price tag of US$3.4 billion, though the agreement is yet to be signed. Continue reading

Greece angers NATO with bid to buy Russian missiles it cannot afford

In a clear stab at the NATO and EU, the Socialist government in Athens is actively negotiating with Russia to purchase Moscow’s S-300 anti-missile system and its service package.

Greek Defense Minister Panos Kammenos confirmed the news on April 15 in the wake of a visit to Moscow by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. Continue reading

Russia opens way to missile deliveries to Iran, starts oil-for-goods swap

Obama’s ‘deal’ with Iran, giving them everything it wanted without restriction, is driving Israel into a corner where it will either have to strike or be struck. Now that the S-300 air defenses for Iran will be rolling in, the window of opportunity for successful first-strike capability is closing fast.

 

(Reuters) – Russia paved the way on Monday for missile system deliveries to Iran and started an oil-for-goods swap, signaling that Moscow may have a head-start in the race to benefit from an eventual lifting of sanctions on Tehran.

The moves come after world powers, including Russia, reached an interim deal with Iran this month on curbing its nuclear program.

The Kremlin said President Vladimir Putin signed a decree ending a self-imposed ban on delivering the S-300 anti-missile rocket system to Iran, removing a major irritant between the two after Moscow canceled a corresponding contract in 2010 under pressure from the West. Continue reading

China may obtain Russia’s latest air missile system S400

Chinese military commentators said China may become the first foreign buyer of Russia’s S400 surface-to-air missile system, which could help the country integrate its air defense and anti-missile systems, reports Chinese national broadcaster CCTV.

The S400 system comes with powerful radar and has anti-jamming capabilities. It is able to create a multi-layer air defense structure with three guided missiles of different ranges as well as tracking hundreds of targets and attacking up to 36 of them at once. Continue reading

China pivot fuels Eurasian century

A specter is haunting Washington, an unnerving vision of a Sino-Russian alliance wedded to an expansive symbiosis of trade and commerce across much of the Eurasian land mass – at the expense of the United States.

And no wonder Washington is anxious. That alliance is already a done deal in a variety of ways: through the BRICS group of emerging powers (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa); at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Asian counterweight to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization; inside the Group of 20; and via the 120-member-nation Non-Aligned Movement (NAM).

Trade and commerce are just part of the future bargain. Synergies in the development of new military technologies beckon as well. After Russia’s Star Wars-style, ultra-sophisticated S-500 air defense anti-missile system comes online in 2018, Beijing is sure to want a version of it. Meanwhile, Russia is about to sell dozens of state-of-the-art Sukhoi Su-35 jet fighters to the Chinese as Beijing and Moscow move to seal an aviation-industrial partnership. Continue reading

Iron Dome Foils 90 Percent of Missiles

Despite cost and lack of deployed units being the dominant issues, the Iron Dome proves it’s not only functional but effective during a real event.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stated Saturday night, “We will continue to improve home front defense including by means of additional Iron Dome systems, the effectiveness of which was shown again over the weekend.”

The Iron Dome system intercepted about 90 percent of the rockets fired at Be’er Sheva, Ashdod and Ashkelon, including three on Sunday morning.
